In Need of a Vacation At a Guest Ranch

So last night I was talking to the infamous "Mr. O" and we decided I just need a mini vacation! Not the kind where you have to get on a plane and pack and do all this work to relax. Just one of those rambling drives through Arizona with no agenda. So today I decided to change the slide show on the blog........First I searched for Vintage Cowboy Boots and I got all these "ads" for crazy things... plus a blonde girl in a black lace gown with Cowboy Boots..(not sure what is vintage about that) Then I tried #Arizona Guest Ranches and started to get some beautiful pictures! That is what I am thinking.... Starting off at #Essence of Tranquility http://www.azhotmineralspring.com in Safford.. I have spent alot of time enjoying the 6 tubs and nice little casitas. The casitas are rented for $60.00 a night and their is a main house with TV, Internet, Movies, full kitchen, showers etc for all to use. This place is really off the map, but it is also really relaxing. A Family of women run the place, and provide massage, reflexology and just a nice quiet time. Clarise, a sister, is the most fascinating artist! She has lots of hand drawn art around the house and she sells these little books filled with Art and Positive Affirmations! So, if all goes right, and Mr. O can get the barn full of Hay without me, I think I will just sneak off. Time to renew my #Cowgirl Spirit.

Are we worming our horses too often?

I received this link from a Twitter friend and thought the article was worth passing on... Especially since I just bought wormer. I am always asking myself if I am worming too much. I justify my schedule due to desert dryness and dust blowing, and the sandy earth the horses live on. So here is the link... let me know what you think...http://is.gd/ubwt

This is a family farm that has been in operation for 57 years. Our goal is to have a number of horses that can be ridden by children who do not have their own, and to provide a home for horses who must be placed or will not have adequate grazing. We have more than enough pasture, as we have sold off the majority of our cattle. I do have a shoer, but I mostly have my horses trimmed,unless they need more. We have automatic waterers, so we do not have a problem with that

Unwanted Horse Coalition

Once again, I am re=posting this information:

Unfortunately another part of our society that is suffering from the economic downturn are Horses. Many people are unable to continue to care for their family pets. At the American Horse Council website they have a list of Organizations accepting these Unwanted horses.

Stay posted for the information of rescue organizations around the country

The State of our Economy

I have a huge problem regarding the lay offs of 100's of teachers in the Tucson Unified School District. I'm not sure if this is just the right decision to make for the children. I just wonder how many of these students are already dealing with a parent who has lost their job? Or maybe their family has lost their home? How about the summer programs for the underprivileged children? Will these programs also affected? How can we continue to miss the point with our society?

Two weeks ago I was watching T.V. with my girls.... they were watching the top 20 earning entertainers. These numbers were astonishing! Gwen Steffani earned 28 million dollars in 2008. I watched this show in disbelief and then walked around quoting these figures to people for the next 2 weeks....

I won't even get started about the big bailouts resting on the shoulders of the working class. I don't understand how unconnected with the real world these bailouts are.

Ok... so my point is: I just feel like we are living upside down. Our kids deserve the bailout package.. they will benefit the most.
